Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and every one that loveth Him that begot, loveth Him also that is begotten by Him. 1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God: when we love God and keep His commandments. 2 This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.
3 For this is the love of God: that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not grievous. 3 This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,
4 For whosoever is born of God overcometh the world. And this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.Π4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6 This is He that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 6 This is the one who came by water and blood--Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.
7 For there are three that bear record in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one. 7 For there are three that testify:
8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, and the water, and the blood; and these three agree in one. 8 the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.
9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater, for this is the witness of God which He hath testified of His Son. 9 We accept man's testimony, but God's testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son.
10 He that believeth in the Son of God hath the witness in himself; he that believeth not God hath made Him a liar, because he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son. 10 Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.
11 And this is the record: that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life, and he that hath not the Son hath not life. 12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 These things I have written unto you that believe in the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe in the name of the Son of God. 13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
14 And this is the confidence that we have in Him: that if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
15 And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him. 15 And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.
16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask and He shall give him life, for those who sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death. I do not say that he shall pray about it. 16 If anyone sees his brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that he should pray about that.
17 All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not unto death. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, and there is sin that does not lead to death.
18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not, but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.
19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
20 And we know that the Son of God is come and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true; and we are in Him that is true, even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and Eternal Life. 20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true--even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. 21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.
